Odell Beckham Jr. says 'thank you' to NY

On Thursday, the newly acquired Browns receiver posted an emotional message to Instagram, thanking the Giants organization and fans for their support.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Giants have made a decision to move on from Beckham, and they'll receive Cleveland's first-round pick in 2019 (the 17th overall pick), as well as the Browns' second third-round pick this year, and safety Jabrill Peppers. That Tigers squad also included Browns wide receivers coach Adam Henry. Cleveland sent guard Kevin Zeitler to NY for edge rusher Olivier Vernon, who will now play on the opposite side of Pro Bowler Myles Garrett.

Across the National Football League landscape, many have regarded the Browns as big winners and the Giants as big losers of the deal.

Beckham will no doubt be looking for new digs in the Cleveland area.

However, there's one bit of brutality even Martin thinks is too much and that is the world of sports. Just one season removed from going 0-16, Cleveland now has 7-1 odds to win the AFC, behind only the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs at the SuperBook. They were looking to improve their offensive line, get some pass rushers and shore up the defense, which struggled in coordinator James Bettcher's switch to a 3-4 front.

Complicating the situation: The Giants haven't figured out their quarterback situation.

Gettleman was general manager of the Panthers when they went to Super Bowl 50 and lost to the Broncos.

But the Giants have three of the top 37 draft picks in April, and 12 overall.

Cleveland plays at New England this season.
